    Hamilton’s stage production should be required viewing for every American citizen, but this exhilarating listen is a much more practical, and every bit as enjoyable, stand-in.

    Tickets to the show may be sold out until approximately forever, but this album is an excellent replacement.

    This recording seems a vital one, and time will tell if the musical is a watershed in big-budget musical theater.

    It’s 46 songs of verbose, intricately delivered raps, spun from a story with enough character to have already made it a New York Times best-seller. There’s a lot of ground to cover regardless of medium.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Mark my word, carve it in stone with a chisel, this will be one of the best musical of the year. No one, I literally mean no one would though to implement hip hop music into a musical about the American revolution in the 1700's. It sounded crazy at first to anyone, but when you really start to think, you see that hip hop music is the best match for the play, they're both about revolution and a vision for a world without discrimination. Furthermore, it's not only Hip-hop that is in the presence of this album, such genres like R&B, Jazz, Pop can be heard.

    It is transparent to anyone that the mastermind of the album and the production, Lin-Manuel Miranda, never has his mind set on either the contemporary or the past music. Instead of being bias, he blended both in magnitude and with elegance, one fine example lies in the song "Alexander Hamilton" rap songs that incorporate string quartet which add drama to a great degree that any listener can appreciate.

    I am certain that there are more to be said to the album, but you need to really listen to the album or watch the musical to see what I mean. This album deserves a 9 out of 10. I would recommend this to any hip-hop listener.
